good point, it seems to be a permission with /dev/dsp indeed. Colin is
right, if PA's user is not actually playing any sound, then it works if I
chmod /dev/dsp the right way.
You could always add an ACL to the device node--that is what
setfacl -m user:<yourusername>:rw- /dev/dsp
setfacl -m user:<yourusername>:rw- /dev/snd/*
BTW, why are you using /dev/dsp which is an OSS device?
